Ever looked around your home and felt like things on the decor front have fallen a little flat? Maybe you’ve been working with the same aesthetic for too  long. Or perhaps you’re like so many of us who need to continually update our surroundings to feel moved and inspired.

Regardless of your reasons for feeling uninspired by your space, the solution might actually be quite simple: plants.
